3 Valuable Home Maintenance Tips for New HomeownersIf you didn’t realize what a huge commitment purchasing a home was before the closing, you certainly must have realized it when you sat at a table with an attorney and signed your name to what seemed like several hundred papers.

Homeownership certainly is a big financial commitment, and keeping your home in great shape is key to protecting your investment. These three home maintenance tips for new homeowners will help you do just that:

1. Keep accurate records

Designate a place to keep all paperwork concerning your new home. Include your original home inspection report, receipts from the purchase of any appliances or fixtures, and any notes you wish to remember, such as the name of the paint color you just applied to your new living room walls.

2. Learn how to turn off your water supply

This may be done at your water meter, or you may have a shut-off valve where the water main enters your home. Be aware that most city water departments fine residents who tamper with their water meter, so you may want to have a separate shut-off valve installed to avoid potential issues with the city.

3. Make sure the fuses in your home’s breaker box are labeled

If they aren’t, you could label them yourself, or retain the services of a qualified electrician. You would be smart to keep a small flashlight near your fuse box in case of electrical emergencies.

Homeownership can seem like a daunting responsibility, but it can be a great long-term asset. To learn more about how to properly maintain your home’s HVAC, contact us and schedule an appointment today!
